Our task card packet is a sample of our STEM Sparks enrichment cards that can be used in a Maker Space or STEM classroom center, as a discussion launcher, or as a homework assignment. Students can write about their solution, draw their ideas, and even perhaps build a prototype. Each challenge lends itself to thinking “out of the box”, creative analysis, and unique problem solving. The students are only limited by their imaginations as they invent a creative answer to each challenge.
Get Caught Engineering loves the Maker Movement and likes to give students time to just explore materials and think about ideas. Inventors do a lot of making, tinkering, exploring, engineering and just pondering the question “what if…..?”. We have put together a sample set of six task cards that have challenges for students. They can be used in a center, for a discussion, or sent home for a fun enrichment activity. The cards are “sparks” to engage your class in creative thinking. Included in this freebie packet are 6 cards of invention and thinking challenges, a sharing sheet, and inquiry questions.
